About Eos GNSS Tools

Eos GNSS Tools is an NTrip Client from Eos Positioning Systems®, Inc. (Eos). The app is designed to receive GNSS differential corrections (RTK or DGNSS) from a Caster or Server over the Internet. It is a must when your field data collection software does not include a built-in NTrip client. Eos GNSS Tools connects to the Arrow Series receiver and handles the two-way communication to send RTK corrections received from the Internet and to receive the NMEA messages. “Positioning data from the Arrow is made available to your field data collection software over a virtual com port or a TCP/IP port.

Key Features

  • Supports both Direct IP and NTrip Protocols
  • Ability to connect to an external radio (Bluetooth®or cabled)
  • Output receiver’s NMEA to Virtual or TCP/IP Port

  • User-configurable audible alarms‏
  • Terminal emulator to send commands to the Arrow Series™ receiver
  • Seeding features for L-Band/Atlas™ satellite corrections
  • Spy Com port to monitor an external device
